Tannins are what lowers pH AFAIK so if the driftwood isn't leeching tannins it's not going to affect the pH. I have a tank of PFR and cray with a fairly good sized piece of driftwood in there and pH is 8.2 or so. Pool filter sand as substrate in that tank. I really like the looks of these and may entertain the idea of getting them to toss into that tank. Hmmmm.
